We don't have less and less gun deaths per year, just deaths of officers. Just want to look at deaths by gunfire? 2015 is completely in line with a typical year.
Using the total deaths per year from guns doesn't tell a story. There is no mention how many of these deaths were from self defense shootings, LEO shootings, suicides or just plain murders. Murders per year with a gun average about 11,000-13,000 per year and that # has dropped every year for the last 20+ years. So your stats on guns mean nothing without a break down. Not all deaths from guns are tragic and some actually save lives.
No, not at all. I am saying if you want to say that X causes Y, where X is the BLM movement and Y is officer deaths, there is absolutely no evidence to support that. There has not been someone arrested who claims he was retaliating against police, there have been no politicians calling for the death of policemen, etc. Some hothead on the street may have said something but it is clearly not a widely held or broadcast position.
Just because they didn't claim it doesn't mean they didn't support it. Why else would they ambush a cop? Some hot head in the street? How about hundreds of people in the street chanting "Pigs in a blanket, fry'em like bacon"? You want to live in a double standard world but the world isn't letting you. Rhetoric kills according to you guys on the left and BLM has called for the killing of cops.
Remember, that nutcase muttering "no more dead baby parts" killed a policeman. Are you going to give that a pass?
We have no idea what his motives were, and what makes you think I give anyone a pass who murders people? More of the left's BS blame game. If I don't support gun control laws, then I'm just as guilty of the murders as the person who pulled the trigger?
